284C Dundalk Stadium Apprentice H'cap

The Stewards requested a report from Reginald Roberts, trainer as to the apparent improvement in form of Misty Lane, winner, as compared with its most recent run at Galway on the 29th July, where she finished last of 16 beaten 18 lengths.
The trainer reported that the filly ran very disappointedly at Galway, where she may not have been suited by the undulating track. She had started to train up light around the time of the Galway race, and so he decided to give her a break and freshen her up, and this may have brought about any apparent improvement in form today.
Having considered the report, the Stewards noted the explanations offered.

284D Irish Stallion Farms EBF (Fillies) H'cap

The Turf Club Veterinary Officer examined Maontri, trained by M.J. Tynan, at the request of the Stewards and reported the animal to be Post Race Normal.

284E Crowne Plaza Race & Stay Package H'cap

David Marnane, trainer of Henson (GB), reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his charge lost a front shoe in running.

284F Carlingford Stakes

The Stewards enquired into possible interference in the closing stages involving Obliterator, ridden by C.T. Keane, winner, and Chance To Dance, ridden by K.J. Manning, placed second, where it appeared Chance To Dance suffered interference. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards were of the opinion that Obliterator had improved his finishing position as a result of this interference and so they reversed the first and second placings, amending the result to read: 1st. Chance To Dance, 2nd. Obliterator, and took no further action.

The Turf Club Veterinary Officer examined Winslow Arizona, at the request of trainer, J.F.O'Shea, and reported the animal Post Race Normal.

F. Lynch, rider of Havelock Ellis (GB), trained by J.F. Levins, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount accidentally clipped a heel after turning into the home straight, slipping up and unseating him.
